“Look at that face, just look at it! Look at that fabulous face of yours, I knew first look I took at it, This was the face that the world adores.”
– Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley, lyrics from “Look At That Face”
- KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.
She wrinkles her nose and a grin emerges, almost as though she’s reacting to something funny you might have said. Her eyes focus on you with a look that asks if this is the play time you promised.
Meet Kendall, a 1-year-old female brown and white pit bull, who was found on a street in Aurora that bears her name. Happy and playful are definitely adjectives that describe her, yet she is just as content to hang out and chill with the family.
She gets excited when she meets other dogs and enjoys their company. Most times she’ll issue them a proper greeting, but if she’s really excited she may skip over the introductions and attempt to move right to the fun stuff like running around the yard and exploring her new world. Toys are fun, but she’s more than willing to share them with others.
Kendall is a real joy to have around and would be a wonderful addition to any family.
Congratulations to our girl Friday, our talkative, energetic little feline. She was adopted by a great family along with Stevie, a white & gray tabby that also came in to KCAC as a stray. We wish the both of you long life and plenty of cubbyholes to hide in.
Flash, the superhero parakeet that chirped his happiness throughout the day found his forever home. Here’s wishing you new songs to sing, Flash!
